Organizational modeling is a discipline which tries to capture and reason about the distinct dimensions (e.g. structure, strategies and processes) involved in organizations by the means of visual models. In order to be effective, these models must represent in an abstract way, the right set of concepts composing each of the organizational dimension. The authors' focuses on identifying and understanding this set of concepts through a foundational ontology. Moreover, they aim at investigating different modeling languages, identifying if (and to what extent) each of them, individually or in combination with one another, adequately covers this set of concepts.
